2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

1 Ess Jagged a goal as a forward., but then sent to defence to try to help shore things up. Just fair. 4

4 VFL Started in attack but shifted to defence and had more of an impact. -
5 VFL Used at both ends of the ground and was handy without starring. -
6 VFL Provided a target in attack and did well around the ground. Kicked a goal and did his bit. -
7 VFL Missed a couple of chances in attack but looked dangerous at stages and gave the Cats a few headaches. -
8 VFL Jagged a couple of goals, but wasn’t a big factor overall. -
9 VFL In and out without having a great impact. Has to do more at this stage. -
10 Bye.
11 VFL Battled away but not his best. Would a change of scenery benefit him? -
12 VFL Played down back and was handy enough. 15 possessions. -
13 Bye.
14 Adel Played as a forward and was reasonable, missed his only shot on goal. 4
15 Coll Played key forward and had nine disposals and two goals by quarter-time. Only touched the ball seven times after that. 5
16 GWS Seven strong marks across half forward. None in dangerous positions though and didn’t hit the scoreboard. 5

18 Frem Marked strongly. Kicked one goal from 17 disposals. 6
19 Syd Relatively quiet night with only 10 disposals. 5
20 Rich More sightings of the Tasmanian Tiger than the Hawk No. 25. Five kicks for two goals. 3
21 NM Got his hands to plenty, but struggled to take many marks. One nice goal assist. 3
22 Carl Pitiful. Failed to provide a physical contest. 1
23 WB Key forward offered up one goal from 11 touches. Question is what strip he’ll be wearing next year. 4

2016 Season

1 Geel Didn’t have a single kick for the day. Horror outing with just two handballs. 1
2 WCE Quiet first half in attack but came into the game a bit more in second stanza. 4

2015 Season

1 -
2 -
3 Senior emergency.
4 Senior emergency.
5 NM Back in team and had Black in his back pocket. 6
6 GWS Struggled to match it with the dangerous Cameron. 3
7 Melb Kicked a goal and competed hard in attack. 5
8 Syd Scored goals in second and third terms but apart from that quiet. 5
9 VFL Did well in tough conditions for talls. Three goals. -
10 StK Made a contribution with two goals and competed well. 4
12 Adel Will struggle to maintain his place in the side, in defence or up forward. 2
13 VFL Had hands full with young Darcy Moore. Not his best game. -
14 Coll Nice goal but not potent in attack. 3
15 Frem Handy in a few contests but not a big factor. 4
16 Syd Work-rate good and played a role. One goal and provided pressure. 5
17 Carl Two goals but took a back seat to others playing up forward. 5
18 Rich Offered very little up forward. Got to be concerned about his place in team. 3
19 WCE Played at both ends. Serviceable. 4
20 Senior emergency.
21 Port Like Frawley spent time at both ends. Good in a few late one-on-ones. 6
22 VFL Used in a number of roles, even ruck. OK without starring. -
23 VFL Ordinary down back then went forward and was very good. -
QF VFL Bye. -
SF Adel Couple of shaky efforts up forward. One goal, eight marks. Keep his spot? 3
PF Frem Added two goals to the cause and grabbed seven marks. Played his part. 6
GF WCE Delighted Hawks with first flag win. Added to forward line aerial strength. 7

2014 Season

1 Knee.
2 Knee.
3 VFL Did well down back in first game back from knee injury. -
4 VFL Still working back to full match fitness. Just fair. -
5 VFL Better as the game wore on after a slow start. -
6 VFL Nearly set for a senior recall. Got better as game wore on. -
7 StK Back after absence with knee with four goals then to defence when Lake hurt. 7
8 Syd Started forward then pushed back to Franklin/Tippett. Rusty. 3
10 Port Kept Schulz to a goal and needs to own centre-half back for the rest of the year. 7
11 GWS Battled Cameron and did fine job restricting him to seven disposals and one goal. 7
12 WCE Beat Darling. Didn’t give him any space. 7
13 Carl Took Casboult who caused him some concerns in the air. 5
14 Coll Serviceable up forward with two goals. Hairdo a concern. 6
15 GCS Effective bullocking role in attack. 5
16 NM Unusual brief match up on McMahon at start then on Hansen. Limited output. 3
17 Adel Struggled to keep Josh Jenkins in check. 5
18 Syd Outmarked by Tippett on occasions early but made some handy spoils. 6
19 WB Had a minimal input and was subbed off in fourth quarter. 2
20 Melb Used at both ends with moderate effect. Can he be a September swingman? 4
21 Frem Found himself forward after half time but little influence on contest. 4
22 VFL Drifted between defence and attack. OK afternoon. -
23 Coll Beaten one-on-one enough to be of concern to the coach. Hope Lake comes up! 4
QF VFL Bye. -
SF -
PF VFL Struggled to contain Redpath and appears long odds of a call up. -
GF -

2013 Season

1 Geel Had Podsiadly and for most part he was handy enough. 5

2012 Season

1 Coll Took Cloke and stuck to his guns. Cloke’s inaccuracy helped. 4
2 Geel Looked all at sea again. Opposition teams have him in the gun 2
3 Adel Had his work cut out on Tippett 3
4 WCE Stood up under pressure. Much improved game. 6
5 Syd Had important job on Reid and contained him. 6
6 StK Stuck to guns in absorbing battle with Riewoldt. Confidence is rising. 6
7 Melb Had the job on Clark who was on top early. Fought back. 5
8 Frem Continued his good run of form in negating role. 6
9 Rich Battled away but Riewoldt had his measure by the end of the day. 3
10 NM Did a good job on Edwards but lack of ball made his task easier. 6
11 Port Plays much better in defence when he stands the third tall or resting ruckman. 5
12 Bris Had his hands full with Brown in first quarter then not a factor. 4
14 Carl Unobtrusive as tall defender. 5
15 GWS Didn’t have to do much as ball hardly went into GWS’ forward line. 3
16 WB Subbed off after even effort up forward with two goals and five marks. 5
17 Coll Thrown task on Cloke and should be proud of his efforts. 8
18 Ess Did OK early on Gumbleton then was outmarked a couple of times. 4
19 Geel Flogged by Hawkins, particularly after half time. The Cat is his worst nightmare. 3
20 Port Started forward, then went back before returning forward. Did well up front. 6
21 GCS Couple of early goals looked impressive in attack. 5
22 Syd Had a massive 10 rebound 50s and defender stoutly all afternoon. 7
23 WCE Had Darling at times and OK. Not as good as last week but held his own. 6
QF Coll One negative to come from game. Monstered by Cloke. Won’t want Hawkins. 2
PF Adel Alternated between Tippett and Walker and had some hairy moments. 3
GF Syd Kept Reid tried down early. Didn’t lose his cool and was effective. 6
